Spring Break TSOT
The German college system is a bit different in that the breaks fall in the spring and late summer. I decided to spent 2 weeks of it in Eastern Europe, primarily Ukraine as it was an area I had never visited and would be very cheap. Amazingly the early sunny forecasts proved to be mostly true with several days of beautiful sun on the scenic mountain line to Rakhiv in the Carpathian mountains. Here train 16, the Rakhiv to Kharkiv Passenger rolls across the Prut River shortly before Yaremche with a 2TE10 leading the way.
